101 Years and Counting…

Today we hit a bit of a milestone. No, we haven’t been going for 101 years (although that really would be something to shout about as an online company). So what has happened? Well 2 things as it happens. And together they add up to 101 years…Today marks the day, that our first ever apprentice has been with us for a full year. Liam (for ’tis his name) joined us straight out of college and has been busily beavering away helping to keep our website up-to-date, and answering some of your many (and varied) enquiries. This is Liam:

This is Liam...







Oops! Maybe this is better:

This is actually Liam!







And that marks his 1Year anniversary with us. But what about the other 100 Years?

Well we were talking today about what makes us different, and why you could care less. I know that you are well aware you could buy the things we sell from a whole range of retailers. But what makes us different? Well, it’s 100 years! Steve (our MD) has 33 years experience selling, using and advising about microphones. Matt (our E-commerce Director) has racked up 28 years. And your very own Shed (Head of Customer Services) has spent 29 of his 50-something years on-stage, behind the counter, and studioing!

What does this mean for you? In a word – experience. You get a combined 100 years of microphone experience with one free call. This means that you get the best possible chance of getting the right mic first time, every time.

You may think that you can only talk to us about the mics. But you’d be wrong! Collectively, we have recording experience in almost every genre, over 15,000 live performances, and even a few assists for Sky TV and the BBC (to name a few). We’ll gladly share advice on any audio-related topic.

But we’re not resting on our laurels. We get manufacturers to come in regularly to train us up so that we can give you the most up-to-date information from all our brands. We are happy to call the MIA (Music Industry Association), MPG (Music Producer’s Guild), SAE (School of Audio Engineering) and AES (Audio Engineering Society our friends.

So when you are looking for advice, to make sure you don’t waste your money, you can count on us to be ready to listen to you. So get it touch today on 0800 098 8079 and you’ll see we’re ready to help!
